For some reason it expects a compound command on named coprocesses,

http://bash-hackers.org/wiki/doku.php/syntax/keywords/coproc

MSGID <address@hidden>

bash(1):
If NAME is not supplied, the default name is COPROC. NAME must not be
supplied if command is a simple command (see above); otherwise, it is
interpreted as the first word of the simple command.

Yes, it's not intuitive.
