Knapp's hire continues a game of coaching musical chairs in the AFC West. Knapp was hired to replace former Broncos QBs coach Adam Gase, who was promoted to Denver offensive coordinator after Mike McCoy left. McCoy, of course, was hired as San Diego's head coach earlier this week.
"Greg is a proven, experienced coach with a very impressive background working with quarterbacks," Broncos coach John Fox said in a statement.
Knapp was in his second stint as Raiders offensive coordinator in 2012, before being fired on Dec. 31. He previously served os Oakland's offensive coordinator from 2007-2008. The Raiders' running game struggled this season, which is believed to be a large part why the team fired him. Oakland finished the 2011 season ranked seventh in the league in rushing but fell to 28th this season with Knapp calling the shots.
Beside the Raiders, Knapp also has served as offensive coordinator for Seattle (2009), Atlanta (2004-06) and San Francisco (2001-03). Knapp also has previous experience as a quarterbacks coach, having held the position with the Texans (2011) and 49ers (1998-2000).
