Alabama coach's playbook stolen before National Championship

Postado Janeiro 12, 2018

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.

Karl Dunbar, a former Jets coach who now coaches the defensive line at Alabama, left his backpack in what the team thought was a secure conference room at the Mariott Marquis hotel, Fox 10 reports. The backpack had $1,300, a laptop, a passport, his phone and the team's playbook for the championship game against Georgia.

Some of the items were recovered in a bathroom, but not the playbook.

Police said he was in a hotel meeting room Saturday afternoon with several other Alabama staff members, discussing game strategy.

"It's bad. It's definitely bad".

Someone stole it, and a surveillance photo shows the suspected thief wearing the backpack.

Right away everyone assumed this man is a Georgia fan, although the alleged theft didn't seem to have an impact on the field.

When she sent them the police report, they did not have a comment.
