The driver who struck New York Jets coach Greg Knapp with their car will not be charged in Knapp's death, according to the New York Post

The Office of the District Attorney issued a statement Friday, stating there is insufficient evidence of criminal negligence to issue a charge.

Knapp was hit by a car while riding his bicycle in July. He was rendered immediately unconscious and died in the hospital five days later. Knapp was 58.

Knapp spent over two decades coaching in the NFL. He worked for seven different teams over his career, including the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. Knapp was the Broncos' quarterbacks coach when the team won the Super Bowl in 2016. 

Knapp joined the Jets in January. He assisted the team throughout the draft process, and was tasked with turning Zach Wilson into a franchise quarterback after the team drafted Wilson in April.

Following Knapp's death, the Jets announced players will wear a sticker on their helmets featuring Knapp's initials throughout the 2021 NFL season.
