I always called them wolf spiders but I'm not so sure that is accurate. It is a very common looking type of spider that runs around and hunts in grass, leaves, in woods, etc. If you look back at some recent ID requests you will see others.
To be sure , they scare ME when I find them in the house, but they are not dangerous.
