Could someone please tell me what kind of spider this is?

I was laying in bed and felt something crawling on my neck. I reached up and threw this spider across the room. It's now dead but I was wondering if we should be concerned.

This looks like a funnel making spider in the family Agelenidae. These are common and make sheet-like funnels on grass, shrubs and near home foundations. They are not considered medically important. These are fast moving spiders.
