Chester McGlockton, a four-time Pro Bowler for the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders, died early Wednesday morning of an apparent heart attack.
The 42-year-old McGlockton had spent the past two years as a defensive assistant at Stanford.
Born in Whiteville, N.C., McGlockton was a high school All-American before starring at Clemson for three seasons. He was selected 16th overall in the 1992 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Raiders and would go on to play 12 seasons in the league, making four Pro Bowls and finishing his career with 48.5 sacks.
He retired in 2003 after stints with the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets. In 2010, McGlockton completed his undergraduate degree at Tennessee-Martin. Later that year, he took a coaching job at Stanford.
"The thoughts and prayers of the Raider Nation are with the McGlockton family during this difficult time,'' Raiders CEO Amy Trask said in a statement.
McGlockton is survived by his wife, Zina, and two children.
The outsized funnyman who kept America laughing via a series of cable specials and capped in August by an uproarious appearance on Comedy Central's Roast of Charlie Sheen has died from complications due to a stroke suffered last month.
On Oct. 19, Opie and Anthony broke the news via Facebook that O'Neal endured a stroke and urged listeners to keep him in their prayers as it was unclear whether he'd recover.
Besides being a regular guest of the radio cut-ups, O'Neal was best known for a string of half-hour HBO and Showtime stand-up specials following his breakthrough on HBO's Def Comedy Jam in 2007. His first hourlong special, Elephant in the Room, debuted on Comedy Central last February.
The comedian was also a regular on Comedy Central's Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn for two years and performed on The Late Show With David Letterman and Late Night With Conan O'Brien.
He also had guest shots on The Office, Arrested Development, and Chappelle's Show among others.
Soviet dictator Josef Stalin's daughter, whose defection to the West during the Cold War embarrassed the ruling communists and made her a best-selling author, has died. She was 85.
Lana Peters — who was known internationally by her previous name, Svetlana Alliluyeva — died of colon cancer Nov. 22 in Wisconsin, where she lived off and on after becoming a U.S. citizen.
Her defection in 1967 — which she said was partly motivated by the poor treatment of her late husband, Brijesh Singh, by Soviet authorities — caused an international furor and was a public relations coup for the U.S. But Peters, who left behind two children, said her identity involved more than just switching from one side to the other in the Cold War. She even moved back to the Soviet Union in the 1980s, only to return to the U.S. more than a year later.

Oklahoma State women's basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna died during a recruiting trip Thursday when their small plane crashed in Perry County, Ark. The pilot and the only other passenger aboard the plane also were killed.
Oklahoma State has canceled the two games its women's basketball team was supposed to host against Grambling State on Saturday and Texas-Arlington on Sunday. Associate head coach Jim Littell will take over as interim head coach whenever the school decides to resume its season.
No school should have to endure a tragedy of this nature, but it's especially unfair that it's happening at Oklahoma State again. One of the school's three charter planes traveling back from a men's basketball game at Colorado crashed in 2001, killing 10 members of the Cowboys' traveling party including freshman guard Nate Fleming and junior guard Dan Lawson.
On November 18th 2011 the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) said it had decided on a cold case review of her death after they were made aware of comments made by the yacht’s skipper that he deliberately misled investigators at the request of the actor Robert Wagner, Wood’s husband.
On November 29, 1981, Actress Natalie Wood drowned after spending several hours drinking on Catalina Island and a yacht with husband Robert Wagner, fellow actor Christopher Walken and the ship's captain, Dennis Davern.

After the argument, Robert Wagner reportedly smashed a wine glass on a coffee table.
Yacht Captain is now saying Robert Wagner is Responsible for Death of Natalie Wood. But he wouldn't say why.
