Agent Jeff Sperbeck announced the tragic news Thursday that Jets passing game specialist Greg Knapp has passed away from injuries he suffered from a bicycle accident last week.
“Today at 11:32 am PST, Greg Knapp (aka Knapper) was called back home to Heaven where he will be reunited with his Dad,” Sperbeck wrote, per Mike Klis. “On Sat. July 17th Greg was struck by a car while riding his bicycle, and was rendered unconscious immediately. Greg never regained consciousness. He was surrounded by his mom, wife, 3 daughters and brother.”
Knapp played seven years in the NFL as a quarterback for the Chiefs, Raiders and 49ers. His coaching career began in 1997 as the 49ers’ offensive quality control coach.
Knapp joined the Falcons as their quarterbacks coach in 2018 before the Jets hired him as their passing game specialist this past January.
