I will do my best to keep adding to this list as much as possible.

Cheers mate, this'll be a help to everyone at some point :)
Are they free?
No they're not free unfortunately ;)
Free 4 star staff: Ian Woan (technique coach) and Joe Corrigan (goalkeeping coach)
And you cant forget Tony Coton, brilliant GK coach, Assistant manager. Always sign him for whoever im managing. Think he's free on FM13.
5 star fitness coaches: Jon Webb, Antonio Pintus
4.5 Stars Goal Keepers Coaches: Billy Stewart, John Achterberg
4.5 Stars Coaches: Marc Wilmots(Shooting)
List updated. Managed to find a few more.

Bernard Peters could be on the list, but his current role is Head of Youth Development, and as a coach has 5* in most area's, but he will not step down to a coach role in the first season it seems.
Helpful list! Thanks alot :)
Re-updated the list since the data loss. Will keep adding as often as possible.
Im surprised noone has mentioned Valdir de moraes, joins most top half premier league teams and has 5* goalkeeping an 4.5* for pretty much every other training section. He is also free, listed as a goalkeeping coach.

Johan cruiyff is another one quite high wages though but worth his 4.5* coaching.
I've not listed De Moraes as he's a pain to try and get to sign at the best of times, plus with the new update (at least on my new save anyway) he doesn't appear. Also with Cruijff, he tends to retire after the first season (Again not on my new save either so dunno where he's gone to).
Updated with new coaches. I know it's been a while, but apologies. Hopefully this will continue to help people who do not use GS13, or a starting new while waiting for GS to update.

Most of these coaches do eventually become 5* but not all.

Enjoy =)
Really helpful list! Thanks alot
Thanks Khejan! This Coaches List has been more than helpful! Also very cool that you've been keeping it updated as SI updates FM 2013. Thanks again! You rock!
