Since they stayed they can attack konoha from their backyard, literally an inside job. And even after the attack you notice Konoha although were suspicios of the uchiha they couldnt just kill him untill they found some incrimaing evidence. They wouldnt have time to plan a coup if were not for Konoha's more tactical mindset as oppose to kill on sight after the attack if the uchiha left the village then the fox attacked, it would be too obvious.
The Master's Legacy
If a theory can't explain the mysteries of the past, it has little chance to explain the mysteries of the present and future.
i just reread some of the chapters where it is discussed and the manga(tobi a.k.a madara says it we can't be sure he cane by bluffing again) clearly says that they started planning a coup before the kyuubi attack its just that the observation and the relocation of the uchiha clan was the last drop for the uchahi to really do the coup
It would be nice to know where sasuke's parents were and I think will find soon when know who tobi is.

if uchihas were in on the Kyuubi attack, and were also planning a coup, wouldn't it make more sense to perform it after the kyuubi attack, seeing that the village was in turmoil ?
