Coy Randall Gibbs (born December 9, 1972) is a former NASCAR driver and assistant coach with the Washington Redskins. His father is NASCAR Championship owner and Hall of Fame former Head Coach Joe Gibbs of the Washington Redskins. Originally from Fayetteville, Arkansas, Gibbs currently lives in Cornelius, North Carolina with his wife Heather and their four children, sons Ty, Case and Jet plus daughter Elle.
Racing career 
Gibbs made his NASCAR debut in the Craftsman Truck Series in 2000, sharing the driving duties of the #18 Chevrolet with his brother J.D. In 2001, he began racing a full time schedule, posting two top-five finishes, and then finishing 10th in points the following year. In 2003, he replaced Mike McLaughlin in the NASCAR Busch Series, nailing down two top-ten finishes and was named runner-up in the Rookie of the Year honors, despite running the full Busch Series schedule unlike award winner, David Stremme. He retired from racing at the conclusion of the season.
Kevin Harvick Incident 
In his entire racing career Gibbs had only one feud with a rival. In 2002 Coy Gibbs driving for his father in Joe Gibbs Racing, made contact with NASCAR popular RCR driver Kevin Harvick at a truck race in Martinsville. A few laps later on a restart Kevin Harvick made contact resulting in Gibbs spinning around ending his high hopes to win. NASCAR reviewed radio chats from Harvick and parked Kevin for the remainder of the weekend when they learned from the radio that Harvick intentionally crashed Gibbs in retaliation for the previous contact. He was further in trouble when he lied in an interview about not intentionally crashing Gibbs even though it was heard by NASCAR who determined he violated his probation he was put on a month prior for an altercation with Greg Biffle; and Kevin was nonetheless banned for the Cup race as punishment. To this day Kevin Harvick, despite being exposed as having done the crime, maintains that he should not have been penalized.
Gibbs was a linebacker at Stanford University from 1991-1994. He led the team in tackles his senior season. In 2004, after his father was re-hired as the Redskins coach, he joined the team as an Offensive Quality Control assistant, serving in that capacity until 2007.
In August 2007, Gibbs announced the formation of Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross (JGRMX). The raceshop for JGRMX will be less than 1 mile away from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams located in Huntersville, NC. Coy will head up the operation along with help from motocross industry veteran David Evans.
They have riders James Stewart and Davi Milsaps signed to race for 2012. JGRMX will race both riders in the Monster Energy Supercross series, and also the AMA National Motocross Championship.
