Knapp, 58, has been an NFL assistant coach since 1997, working mostly with quarterbacks. He worked for the 49ers, Falcons, Raiders, Seahawks, Texans and Broncos before joining the Jets as Robert Saleh’s new staff.
Knapp has spent the past three seasons as a quarterback coach for the Falcons. He won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015 as Peyton Manning’s quarterbacks coach.
Knapp had been the main vocal to rookie quarterback Zach Wilson during OTA practices and minicamp in the spring.
