AJetsOf on SI official forums posted a new Coach Formula updated for Patch 9.3.0.
9.3.0 Coach Formula: ddm = determination + discipline + motivating

strength, aerobics
fit * 9 + ddm * 2
>= 270 -> 7
>= 240 -> 6
>= 210 -> 5

goalkeeper
gk * 2 + ddm
>=90 -> 7
>=80 -> 6
>=70 -> 5

tactics
tac * 2 + ddm
>=90 -> 7
>=80 -> 6
>=70 -> 5

ball control
tec * 6 + men * 3 + ddm * 2
>=270 -> 7
>=240 -> 6
>=210 -> 5

defense
def * 8 + (tac + ddm) * 3
>=360 -> 7
>=320 -> 6
>=280 -> 5

attack
att * 6 + tac * 3 + ddm * 2
>=270 -> 7
>=240 -> 6
>=210 -> 5

shooting
tec * 6 + att * 3 + ddm * 2
>=270 -> 7
>=240 -> 6
>=210 -> 5

set pieces
(att + men + tec) * 3 + ddm * 2
>=270 -> 7
>=240 -> 6
>=210 -> 5
The download link is a spreadsheet created by mmfaria on the official SI forum; there you can put the coach's attributes and it returns how many stars he is at every training category. There are 2 other spreadsheets created by other members, but I picked this one for the main download link because it was created with Excel. However, you will find download link to the other files as well (see bottom).
Example on how to get 7 stars training.

strength, aerobics
fit 20 + ddm>= 45 =7
fit 19 + ddm>= 50 =7
fit 18 + ddm>= 54 =7
fit 17 + ddm>= 59 =7

goalkeeper
gkp 20 + ddm>= 50 =7
gkp 19 + ddm>= 52 =7
gkp 18 + ddm>= 54 =7
gkp 17 + ddm>= 56 =7
gkp 16 + ddm>= 58 =7
gkp 15 + ddm>= 60 =7

tactics
tac 20 + ddm>= 50 =7
tac 19 + ddm>= 52 =7
tac 18 + ddm>= 54 =7
tac 17 + ddm>= 56 =7
tac 16 + ddm>= 58 =7
tac 15 + ddm>= 60 =7

defense
def 20 + (tac+ ddm)>=67 =7
def 19 + (tac+ ddm)>=70 =7
def 18 + (tac+ ddm)>=72 =7
def 17 + (tac+ ddm)>=75 =7
def 16 + (tac+ ddm)>=78 =7
def 15 + (tac+ ddm)>=80 =7

A more specific example
Some people have difficulty understanding the way I presented it, so here's an example:
Open Meulensteen in the data editor:

det=18 dis=18 mot=18
ddm=18+18+18=54
tac=15
att=18
def=12

Tactics Rating:
15 *2 + 54 = 84 -> 6 star

Attack Rating:
18 *6 + 15 * 3 + 54 *2 = 261 -> 6 star

Defense Rating:
12 * 8 + (15 + 54) * 3 = 303 -> 5 star

In a game where a coach (here I used Reulensteen as an example) has those stats, that's the training star rating they will get, as computed above. Depending on your luck, you might get a better or worse Reulensteen than the default setting.

abojep on SI official forums created a spreadsheet that does all the maths for you. You just have to enter the coach details in the "Coaches" sheet and then look at the "Stars" sheet to see what rating it gives.
Download abojep's spreadsheet here.

the_colonel on SI official forums created a spreadsheet where you put the stats for the coaches in and it tells you the star ratings, whether it's 7, 6, 5 or less than 5.
Download the_colonel's spreadsheet here.

mmfaria on SI official forums developed an Excel sheet where you can put the coach's attributes and it returns how many stars he is at every training category.
