Alabama defensive coach Karl Dunbar had a bag, which included the team’s playbook and other items, stolen from the team hotel days before title game.
Dunbar had left his backpack in a meeting room in the Marriott Marquis around 12:45 p.m. ET on Jan. 6. When he returned several hours later, the bag was gone. He told police that the bag contained his playbook, two cellphones, his iPad, passport, sunglasses, reading glasses and his wallet — which included $1,320.
An unidentified suspect was caught on video taking the backpack, WSB-TV (Atlanta) reported. Police said that the hotel security found a handful of the stolen items in a third-floor restroom.
Messages made to the Alabama athletic department on Friday morning were not immediately returned by USA TODAY Sports.
