How can I determine if the coil is bad on my mower? No spark and all other system checks normal.

Craftsman Riding Lawn mower model number 917.273642. I have compression and fuel, but do not have spark (engine turns over just fine). The spark plug and fuse are fine. I checked the seat switch with an OHM meter and it works fine. Is there a way to check the coil? This tractor has a Briggs and Stratton engine model number 31P777 type number 0348E1. Any other suggestions on what the problem might be?

The mower was working just fine as I drove it around the yard, the lights were left on so I charged the battery and ever since then it will not spark/start. The battery is fine now, and jumping the mower does not work either - still no spark, with compression and fuel to the cylinder. Coil?? The mower only has 75 hours on it.
