An Alabama assistant coach had his backpack stolen in the days leading up to the national title game.

Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar was victimized by a theft just two days before the Tide faced Georgia in the College Football Playoff national title game.

According to Tyisha Fernandes of WSBTV in Atlanta, Dunbar’s personal backpack was taken from a room at the Alabama team hotel last Saturday in Atlanta.

In the bag sat his playbook, passport, money, laptop and phone -- all of which were taken.

A photo of the alleged suspect has been released.

Check it out below:

Right away everyone assumed this man is a Georgia fan, although the alleged theft didn't seem to have an impact on the field. Alabama walked out with a 26-23 overtime victory over the Dawgs.

Forgetting the playbook aspect of the theft, this stinks for Dunbar, who lost his passport, money, laptop and phone.

We'll update this situation as more becomes known.
