Something is keeping power to the ignition coil. You need a wiring schematic and trace the wiring.

Sounds like a short circuit to me. You are getting power to the coil when the ignition is off, so you'll need to track down where the power is getting to the coil lead when the switch is off. If you have added an electronic tach, MSD box, or anything else, remove their wires and see if you still have power at the coil. Also check the starter solenoid (and the wiring that goes to it) the voltage regulator, and alternator. Even an aftermarket car stereo can short out and put voltage in places it's not supposed to be if it has a power wire for a constant "hot" power source. Those are your most likely culprits. If it's none of them, the problem is in the wiring harness itself. Look for any areas that the wiring harness has come in contact with heat like the exhaust and melted.

You didn't mention whether you've changed the coil wire itself. If it's faulty, you'll get no spark anywhere. Also, the power supply to the coil or module could be at fault.
