My weight training coach at school told us we shouldnt do bench press burnouts because they can hurt your tendons and he thinks that is why he has a bad shoulder. Does anyone know if burnouts really do hurts your tendons? Also, what about a bicep burnout. Would a bicep burnout hurt any tendons in your arm?

He may be thinking of tenonitis, which is an inflammation from overuse of the connective tissue (the tendon). If you've heard of tennis elbow this is what tennis players are talking about, the constant motion putting unexpected stress on the tendon causing a painful inflammation.
Young athletes that are new to a sport are at risk of overuse injuries when they jump into an activity too fast. Older people are equally susceptible because they often have poor circulation (the connection tissue does not have blood vessels of its own).
Your coach could be talking about any number of injuries, but if you develop an ache that doesn't relieve without antinflammatory medications then odds are that doing any exercise to failure won't harm you.
