Has anyone heard of the modeling agency "COACH Models"?
If anyone knows anything about it, is it safe, or is it a scam?

I've just reviewed the site. Unfortunately, this is not a legitimate agency site.
1.) They represent themselves as a "Scouting Service". This means tht they do not have any direct relationships with potential clients. Their aim would be to try to get you signed with a real agency. If they do, they will get a finders fee of approximately 5% of your future earnings for doing very little work. That's your money!
2.) The major purpose of their website is to sell models online portfolios. Real agencies would do this for free if you were signed.
3.) The site has a "Bookings Guarantee" (and they even spell the word "guarantee" wrong). No legitimate agency can guarantee that you will be booked for work. That's up to you and how well you perform at go-sees.
If you think that you recognize the name, it is because they are using a font and name which is very similar to Coach handbags.

It sounds familiar
but remember you shouldn't have to give them any money
If they really want you they will pay you, since they'll be making money off of you anyways
