Just because you have no spark doesn't mean it's automatically the ignition coil. There are sensors inside the distributor that measure cylinder position and this signal is needed to time the ignition and injector pulse. I would replace the whole distributor to ensure you don't have another problem.
However, if it is a faulty coil again, you may have a short in the engine harness or the secondary ignition may have high resistance (rotor/cap, wires or plugs)
