Not necessarily. He could be arguing a call. If he talks to the pitcher, though. There probably is an infraction.

Here is part of the rule: A manager or coach is considered to have concluded his visit to the mound when he leaves the 18-foot circle surrounding the pitcher's rubber.
Rule 8.06 Comment: If the manager or coach goes to the catcher or infielder and that player then goes to the mound or the pitcher comes to him at his position before there is an intervening play (a pitch or other play) that will be the same as the manager or coach going to the mound.

The job of the center mid is to play the whole field. They go on offense and defense, but they must remember to stay in the middle of the field. If you have only three mids then they are responsible for the offense, defense, and the whole middle of the field. If you have 4 midfielders, then you usually have a offensive mid, and defensive mid. One playing more offense, and one playing more defense. Or you will have one playing right center and one playing left center.

How does the coaches' challenege of a play work?

The coach on either team can throw a "red" challenge flag if they feel that the ref's call on the field is in error.This goes for defense or offense. If the call is reversed to in fact be in favor of the challenging coach, then the ref's decision on the field is overruled and there is no further action. If the call on the field stands (does not reverse due to the challenge of the coach), then the challenging coach is charged a timeout. A coach is only allowed two challenges per half of a football game.
