In brief: Indirectly
Coumadin (warfarin) will inhibit clotting factors, which prevent you from bleeding.
Blood vessels are always leaking, and low levels of clotting is always happening. If you got bumped or hit in the sides, or a traumatic insult happened to the kidney, Coumadin (warfarin) would keep the vessels from clotting immediately, allowing bleeding and damage to the functional parts of the kidney.
