Greg Knapp (occasionally spelled as Gregg, born March 5, 1963 in Long Beach, California) is the former offensive coordinator for the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks. He was named to the position in January, 2009, by new head coach Jim L. Mora. Knapp, whose forte is the West coast offense, was offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons from 2003-2006 under former coach Jim L. Mora. Prior to joining the Falcons, Knapp spent nine years in various positions with the San Francisco 49ers, which include Offensive Coordinator from 2001-2003, Quarterbacks Coach from 1998-2000 and Offensive Quality Control from 1995-1997.

As a quarterback at Sacramento State University, Knapp enjoyed a distinguished career where he ranked among the Hornets' career leaders with more than 3,800 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes. He went to training camps with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1986, Los Angeles Raiders in 1987-1990 and the 49ers in 1992-1994, but never made an NFL team as a player. Prior to joining the 49ers as a coach, Knapp spent nine years on the coaching staff of Sacramento State University, serving as running backs coach from 1986-1989, receivers coach from 1989-1990 and offensive coordinator/assistant head coach from 1991-1994.
