The way the "Law" reads there isn't a specified "coaches box" only the designated "Technical Area". That said, only one person is allowed to convey "tactical instructions" from the Technical Area.

The rules governing the "Technical Area" are as follows:
The technical area relates to matches played in stadiums with a designated sitting area for team officials, substitutes and substituted players as outlined below:

the technical area should only extend 1 m (1 yd) on either side of the designated seated area and up to a distance of 1 m (1 yd) from the touchline

markings should be used to define the area

the number of persons permitted to occupy the technical area is defined by the competition rules

the occupants of the technical area:

are identified before the start of the match in accordance with the competition rules

must behave in a responsible manner

must remain within its confines except in special circumstances, e.g. a physiotherapist/doctor entering the field of play, with the referee's permission, to assess an injured player

only one person at a time is authorized to convey tactical instructions from the technical area
