Broncos hire Knapp as QB coach

The SportsXchange

The Denver Broncos announced Friday that Greg Knapp was hired as the team's quarterbacks coach.

Knapp was fired as the Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator after the regular season. It was his second stint with the Raiders.

Now, Knapp will get to work with quarterback Peyton Manning.

The job opened up when Adam Gase was promoted to offensive coordinator after Mike McCoy left to become the San Diego Chargers' head coach.

"Greg is a proven, experienced coach with a very impressive background working with quarterbacks," Broncos coach John Fox said in a statement. "He's had success with Pro Bowlers and established players while also being instrumental in the development of younger quarterbacks. I've coached against him for a number of years and have a lot of respect for him. We are pleased to add someone of his caliber to our coaching staff."

Knapp was the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers (2001-03), Atlanta Falcons (2004-06), Raiders (2007-08) and Seattle Seahawks (2009).
