What you describe is not necessarily indicative of a coach not knowing what he's talking about - anything new/different that you do with lift technique can feel bad/wrong/harder when you're first introduced to it - that can be simply the result of you being comfortable with and habituated to the "wrong" way.

That said, it could also be that he has no idea what he's talking about.

No one's really going to be able to tell you without knowing what you're doing and what he's trying to get you to do.
