Flying open is usually timing being off or hitting the outside portion of the ball too much. Work on hitting line drives and ground balls up the middle and this should fix the appearance of flying open. I also fly open if I use a bat that is too light. You might also be really flexible which is great for hitting so your coach might be seeing a lot of core flexibility. You have to be diplomatic and very respectful with your coach so maybe you can suggest you are going to work on hitting the ball hard up the middle. I can't think of many coaches that would argue with this approach to hitting.
