Cause of Death
Knapp, 58, was an avid cyclist who was riding Saturday in San Ramon in Northern California when a motorist swerved into the bike lane and hit him, said his agent, Jeff Sperbeck.He never regained consciousness and died Thursday surrounded by his wife, his three daughters, his mother and his brother.
“Greg’s infectious personality is most people’s first and lasting memory of him,” Sperbeck said in a statement. “The phrase ‘he never met a stranger’ encapsulates Knapper’s zest for life. He had a unique gift to make everyone feel special, and to Knapper, they all were.”
The coming season would have been Knapp’s first with the Jets. He and new head coach Robert Saleh were hired in January in a staff shake-up in hope of ending the franchise’s five straight years of losing records.
