CLEMSON – Former Clemson great Chester McGlockton died Tuesday night, Stanford officials announced Wednesday. McGlockton, 42, was a defensive assistant at Stanford.

McGlockton, who reportedly suffered a massive heart attack, was part of Clemson’s last ACC title team in 1991 when he earned All-ACC honors as a defensive tackle and went on to become a first-round pick in the 1992 NFL Draft. McGlockton had a 12-year career in the NFL, named to the Pro Bowl four times.

“For the past two seasons, Chester has been a valuable member of our football staff and a wonderful friend to us all,” said David Shaw, Stanford’s director of football. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chester’s wife Zina and their two children.”

McGlockton is a native of Whiteville, N.C.
