New York Jets assistant Greg Knapp dies following tragic accident

The NFL world was saddened to hear the death of New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp on Friday.

58-year-old Knapp died five days after being involved in a cycling crash.

The incident took place near his home in Danville, California, with the San Ramon Police Department stating Knapp collided with a single motorist.

Knapp was hired by the Jets in January as part of new coach Robert Saleh’s staff, working as the passing game specialist.

Knapp’s family release statement

According to reports, Greg Knapp was surrounded by his children, mother, wife and brother when he passed away.

The family released the following statement:

“Greg Knapp (aka Knapper) was called back home to Heaven, where he will be reunited with his Dad.

“Greg’s infectious personality is most people’s first and lasting memory of him.

“The phrase ‘he never met a stranger’ encapsulates Knapper’s zest for life. He had a unique gift to make everyone feel special and, to Knapper, they all were.

“While his family, friends and players still had so much to learn from him and desperately wished they had more time with him, God called an audible and wanted to go over the game plan directly with him. It will certainly be a masterpiece, just like Greg!”
