The problem with that is the coach at any second could yell out a location or somting. And there isnt alot that can be done about that. So thats why I said no in general.

But things that dont really matter when they are said are fine. Like "Take the Snake" or "move up"

PM for sniper assistance.
Dagger/Commander- Telling the team what to do, then showing them how it's done.

One thing, coaches can't coach if players don't try to listen. By not listening the players won't use teamwork. That ultimately makes them a weaker team.

Between games? Fine.
Off field? Sure.
During a match? Not at all.
It would be easy to come up with codes for his team so they'd know exactly where the OpFor is. Sure he's not actually yelling, "There's one behind that stump-thing" but he could yell, "Blue turkey 50", and it would mean the same thing.
So no, if he's not on-field playing with them, no.

Between plays and such during football the coach often had to yell and tell me to quit 'tip toeing' and hit the whole. Then once I got into open green they would tell me to run. I never heard them yell anything to me after the cadence had started. All fo last year I didnt even know the stadiums ahd a PA system and they announced tackles and such over them. Somtimes people on the other team would change teh cadence up in one way, but say somthing differt to change it up(Red 52, Red 52 Changes to Rose 52, Rose 52 or somthign similar). So it'd make it seem they were sayin one thing but in reality it was somthing completely different. Baseball coaches do it with wipeoffs and indicators and other things like that.
In paintball I can see people telling somone to watch their elbows and maybe even say 'keep and eye on all of the field' hinting the guy missed somone(since I'm sure thats the only time anyone would say that). However the same thing could happen in Paintball like it does in other sports, the coaches could be saying one thing and actaully meaning somthing else. Its more than likely going to happen since all of the petty tricks, cheats, and dirtyness of competetive play in the sport is traditionally accepted.
So in short, allow coaching and not 'remote control'.

But for walk on teamless rabbles they should be able to say things that would help the player in other games.
Tuck in more, watch the balls in your hopper,
Small things like that make the players better. I don't think anyone will say that snapshot now is something a ref should yell.
