Wednesday November 30th, 2011

Four-time former Pro Bowler and current Stanford University defensive assistant Chester McGlockton passed away early this morning at the age of 42, according to ESPN.

"Everyone in the Stanford football family is deeply saddened by the passing of Chester McGlockton," Stanford coach David Shaw said in a statement. "For the past two seasons, Chester has been a valuable member of our football staff and a wonderful friend to us all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chester's wife, Zina, and their two children."

McGlockton registered 51 sacks and 551 tackles over his 13-year NFL career. His best years came when he was the starting defensive tackle for the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders from 1992-1997, a span where he was selected to four Pro Bowls and named an All-Pro three times. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, and New York Jets.
