ATLANTA, GA - AUGUST 22: QB's coach Greg Knapp takes notes in the second half of an NFL preseason game against the Washington Redskins at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on August 22, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp died today (July 22) at the age of 58.

Knapp was struck by a car while riding his bicycle in Northern California on Saturday. He was rendered unconscious immediately and then transported to John Muir Medical Center.

Jeff Sperbeck, Knapp’s agent, announced that he never regained consciousness and was surrounded by his mom, wife, brother, and his 3 daughters at the time of his death.

“Greg had such an inner peace about him that people always seemed to gravitate towards,” New York Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh said in a press statement. “He lived life in a loving way that helped him connect with people from all walks of life in a unique way. In his short time here, I believe the people in this organization had a chance to experience that connection.”
