There is very distinct social interaction and hierarchy within coyote packs. They often have competition involving ordered fights between the current alpha and other competing coyotes. The barking that you hear is most likely associated with these ordered fights which occur mostly in the evening.
Coyotes are pack animals, they travel and often hunt in packs. They not only use howling and yipping as a form of hierarchy, but also when hunting. During a hunt, they will often break off and circle the pray. The howl is a signal to the other pack members that they are going in for the kill. The pack will often howl in victory after a successful hunt.
