Alabama players celebrate defeating Georgia for the college football championship, in Atlanta, Jan. 8, 2018.

An Alabama coach's playbook was stolen in Atlanta before the National Championship Game between the Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs.

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.

Alabama has not commented on the incident, but according to the police report (obtained by ESPN), Dunbar told authorities he lost his game day notebook, wallet, iPad, passport, sunglasses, reading glasses and $1,320 in the bag.

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

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

Police said he was in a hotel meeting room Saturday afternoon with several other Alabama staff members, discussing game strategy. "One shouldn't do it and I believe Georgians wouldn't do it", Georgia fan Bobby Val said.
