Alabama coach's playbook stolen before title game

12 January 2018

Alabama won the title game 26-20 in overtime over Georgia on Monday night.

According to a police report made in Atlanta, University of Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar reported a backpack stolen from a meeting room at the team hotel on Saturday, January 6.

Dunbar (and his boss, Nick Saban) would probably like to see that playbook returned, to say nothing of his other valuables, but it probably feels a bit less urgent now that the Crimson Tide are national champs.

Atlanta Police said defensive line coach Karl Dunbar left his backpack in what the team thought was a secure conference room at the Mariott Marquis hotel.

In addition to the playbook, Dunbar also had a wallet, $1,320 in cash, two cellphones, a passport, an iPad, sunglasses and reading glasses in the backpack.

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

Now we know it clearly didn't matter because no where in the stolen playbook did it say that Tua would step in after halftime and be the second coming of John Elway. He came to Alabama from the National Football League where he spent 10 years.
