A Jets assistant coach has been hospitalized in critical condition after a bicycle accident, according to a report.
9News in Denver reported that Greg Knapp, a longtime NFL assistant who joined the Jets in January as their passing game coordinator, is fighting for his life in a California hospital after being struck by a motorist while riding his bike. The report said he suffered serious injuries.
Knapp, 58, has been an NFL assistant coach since 1997, primarily working with quarterbacks. He has worked for the 49ers, Falcons, Raiders, Seahawks, Texans and Broncos before joining the Jets as part of Robert Saleh’s new staff.
Knapp spent the past three seasons as the Falcons quarterbacks coach. He won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015 as Peyton Manning’s quarterbacks coach.
Knapp had been the primary voice in rookie quarterback Zach Wilson’s ear during OTA practices and the minicamp in spring.
