N.Y. Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp in critical condition after bicycle accident

New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp is currently battling life-threatening injuries after he was hit by a car in California while riding his bicycle last Saturday.

San Ramon Police Department reported that the 58-year-old was struck by a “single motorist” near his residence in Danville.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh has issued a statement regarding this incident.

“Greg is such an amazing individual it is hard to imagine the challenge facing him and his family,” the statement reads. “Greg’s fun nature, kind disposition, and wealth of knowledge has allowed him to make genuine connections with all of our coaches, players, and staff since he has been here. I ask that you keep him in your prayers as we all pull for him to recover from this horrific accident.”

The Knapp family also wrote a statement and thanked everyone who has been sending thoughts and prayers for Greg. “Greg is an amazing father and husband whose passion for life can be felt in all his interactions with people. He is our rock and biggest supporter, pushing us to all strive to better ourselves each day with constant love and inspiration.”

Knapp was brought to the New York Jets in January 2021. He has been coaching in the NFL since 1997 with the San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, and Houston Texans.
