Alabama Assistant Coach Had His Playbook Stolen Two Days Before Title Game

Two days before Alabama took on Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday, Crimson Tide defensive line coach Karl Dunbar left his backpack in a conference room at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Atlanta. When he returned, according to ESPN, the backpack was gone, along with its all contents, including an iPad, passport, several pairs of glasses, $1,320 and… an Alabama playbook.

Per WSB-TV in Atlanta, which first reported this story, some of the items from the backpack were later recovered in a bathroom, but the playbook was not among them. That means that leading up to the national title game, Alabama had to worry that someone on the other sideline had access to the Crimson Tide’s playbook.
