Each coach handles a specific role and will train a specific aspect of a player, so each of them are important in their own right. 

Please note that some attributes may vary from save to save. Some coaches may not show up on the search based on the database size you’ve selected at the start of your save. 

The “work with youngsters” attribute is always a plus for all coaches regardless of their role and plays an important part in how they interact with younger players in your squad. 

The adaptability attribute is important for coaches who go to foreign leagues and is a factor in how fast they adapt to their new setting.

Also, some are good at multiple roles, but we will be mentioning them only in their best role. But you can use them however you see fit, depending on the strength of your team.
