FRom: San Jose Mercury News

Former Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl defensive lineman Chester McGlockton died from an apparent heart attack. He was 42.

McGlockton, who was a defensive assistant coach at Stanford the past two seasons, played 12 seasons in the NFL after being the Los Angeles Raiders' No. 1 pick in 1992.

"Everyone in the Stanford Football family is deeply saddened by the passing of Chester McGlockton," said Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football David Shaw. "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."

Stanford officials said McGlockton died overnight.

McGlockton was a four-time Pro Bowl selection who also spent time with the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets.

After McGlockton's NFL career was over, he spent some time as an assistant coach at Hayward's Chabot College.
