According to the Associated Press, Tami Williams said Tuesday that the car’s driver was cooperative and that drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the incident.
Knapp was hired by the Jets in the summer to join new head coach Robert Saleh’s staff.
In 1997, Knapp began his NFL coaching career with the San Francisco 49ers.
He worked for the 49ers, Falcons, Raiders, and Seahawks as an offensive coordinator.
He coached quarterbacks for the Texans and the Broncos.
“He led a loving life that allowed him to interact with individuals from all walks of life in a special way.”
“I believe the people in this organization got a opportunity to experience that connection during his brief time here,” Saleh said in a statement posted by the team.
His wife, Charlotte, three daughters, Jordan, Natalie, and Camille, as well as his brother, survive him.
