Former NFL defensive tackle and current Stanford assistant coach Chester McGlockton was pronounced dead last night from a heart attack. The four-time Pro Bowler was a staple for 12 years in the NFL, playing three seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1998-2000. He was also a three-time All-Pro.
“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.”
His best years were with the Raiders and the mammoth tackle earned an incredible 51 sacks from the defensive interior. He was in his second season at Stanford.
