In incredibly tragic news, Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp died on Thursday from injuries he sustained in a bicycle accident a few days ago. The Jets released statements from Knapp’s family, head coach Robert Saleh, and owner Woody Johnson.

Knapp had a long and distinguished career as an NFL assistant coach. He worked with the 49ers, Falcons, Raiders, Seahawks, Texans, and Broncos organization winning a Super Bowl ring as Denver’s quarterbacks coach in 2015. He joined the Jets in January as a pass game specialist after the hiring of Robert Saleh as head coach.

We all keep Coach Knapp’s loved ones in our thoughts during this difficult time.
