Troy Bilt Bronco riding mower with Kohler courage 18 wont start.....

I have a Troy Bilt Bronco with a Kohler courage 18 engine. The engine ran fine the last time I used it (two weeks ago) and now it won't start. The starter solenoid went out a few weeks ago, instead of fixing it, I did the quick and easy thing and jumped it off of the bottom of the starter - I have jumped it in this fashion probably 4 times - now it won't jump off and won't even make a noise. I wasn't sure if the mower battery was good, so I even tried jumping it off my truck, so I know it was getting plenty of volts, yet it didn't even make a noise. I put a new starter on it this morning and still no luck....(i thought that must be the problem since it wouldnt jump off) I check the oil (which has been changed once a year in the three years I have owned it and its good. what could it be...the coil?
