Alabama went on to beat Georgia 26-23 in overtime for the national title after backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led a comeback in the second half.

Remember when then-Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had his playbook stolen before last year's Super Bowl?

According to a police report, Karl Dunbar reported the theft on January 6 at the Marriott Marquis.

Police say an Alabama coach's backpack, which included his playbook, was stolen from his hotel ahead of the National Championship.

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.

Coach Karl Dunbar, the defensive line coach, made the Atlanta police aware that his backpack was stolen from a meeting room at the team hotel before the National Championship Game.

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

We'll update this situation as more becomes known.
