His offensive linemen know what he wants. They know what drills he runs, and if they don’t do them right, they anticipate his loud bark across the field. In film meetings, they’ve started using Harding’s terminology to acknowledge the mistakes they make. “I think that kind of shows you’re starting to hit home,” he said.
