Liz and I extend our condolences to the Knapp Family. As alums and boosters of the Sacramento State Hornets, we watched him play and got to know Greg while he as coaching there and followed his career in the NFL. He was truly one of the great guys. When he came back he always recognized everyone and just made everyone feel important. We will miss him. May he rest in peace.

To Greg's family...I coached with Greg early on at SAC State...he was an amazing friend and mentor. Always had time for the players' personal issues and he always took care of the other coaches at his own expense in time and treasure. He and I were the same age and I was literally going to contact him this week like we did before most seasons to catch up and wish each other well. He never failed to both write and call in references for my coaching career and I will continue to coach in his memory and following his incredible style. RIP my Friend!

He was the best guy in the NFL, as far as looking out for my grandson, who adored him. We would go to the games, and he got his picture taken with Greg. He is 31 now, but still thought Greg was the perfect coach, and so did my husband and I.

I was saddened to learn of Greg’s death. I had the good fortune to meet Greg when I joined the faculty of Sacramento State. At that time, in addition to coaching, he was helping to organize what is now the Student-Athletic Resource Center because of his commitment to seeing student athletes complete their degrees.

May the sorrow experienced now be eased by the many memories of the lives he touched.
