Posted Nov 30, 2011

Former Broncos, Raiders, Chiefs and Jets defensive lineman Chester McGlockton passed away at age 42.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Former Broncos defensive lineman Chester McGlockton passed away overnight. He was 42.

McGlockton spent the 2001 and 2002 seasons in Denver, also spending time with the Raiders -- where he went to four Pro Bowls -- Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets.

Head Coach John Fox was the defensive coordinator when McGlockton played in Oakland.

“It was a real shock," Fox said Wednesday. "I found out just before we came to practice. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Chester was a great player, a Pro Bowl player. I had him while I was with the Oakland Raiders, and, like I said, I’m still in shock. He was a tremendous player. It was shocking news for me.”

The former Clemson standout was in his second season as a defensive assistant on the Stanford coaching staff.

He is survived by his wife, Zina, and their two children.

Stanford Head Coach David Shaw issued the following statement:

"Everyone in the Stanford Football family is deeply saddened by the passing of Chester McGlockton. 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."
