NFL coach dead at 58 from tragic bike accident

Death always reminds us of how short life really is. It’s especially poignant when that death is a sudden, tragic accident.

Greg Knapp, who earlier this year joined the New York Jets as an assistant coach, was struck and killed while riding his bicycle in California last Saturday, Fox News reported. The 58-year-old left behind a wife and three daughters.

Knapp was riding his bike near his Danville, California home when he was struck by a vehicle that allegedly swerved into the bicycle lane. He was immediately knocked unconscious and never woke up, passing away later at the hospital surrounded by his family.

“Greg spent 33 years coaching football, the first 9 at Sacramento State (where he also played QB) and the next 24 years in the NFL as an Offensive Coordinator and Quarterback Coach,” a statement from the family said. “He coached hundreds of players, including: Steve Young, Jeff Garcia, Rick Mirer, Matt Schaub, Michael Vick, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, and most recently Zach Wilson,” the family said of the NFL players he worked with on several teams over the years.

“Those of us who were so blessed to have known him, know that he would have wanted even this moment to be a teachable one,” the statement continued. “So this is it…’Live every day as if it’s your last, and love those around you like it won’t last!'”

The family went on to say Knapp had an “infectious personality” and was the kind of person who “never met a stranger” in his life. “He had a unique gift to make everyone feel special, and to Knapper, they all were,” the statement said using his nickname.

“While his family, friends, and players still had so much to learn from him and desperately wished they had more time with him, God called an audible and wanted to go over the game plan directly with him,” the family concluded. “It will certainly be a masterpiece, just like Greg!”

This is a tragic accident that punctuates a life that by all accounts was well-lived. We are reminded to always be ready, to have our souls prepared to give an account to God for our years on Earth — and that could come any time for any of us.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
