The days leading up to the National Championship Game didn’t go as planned for Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar.

Dunbar placed his backpack in a room he thought was safe on Saturday, but when he came back to retrieve it, it was missing according to WSB TV. The backpack had $1,300, a laptop, a passport, his phone and the team’s playbook for the championship game against Georgia.

Police are looking for the suspect, and they have a photo of the suspect with the backpack. They can’t verify the man’s identity, but they’re looking for him. Some of the items from the backpack were found in a bathroom, but the playbook is still missing.

Alabama trailed 13-0 in the title game before storming back and winning 26-23 over the Bulldogs.

Dunbar has been with the team the last two seasons, and he previously served as the defensive line coach for the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears and at LSU.

Hopefully police can find who stole the backpack and Dunbar can recover his missing items.
