i hade the same problem with mine turns out mine was caused by the distributer being faulty. not sure if it is the same with yours but it is worth a try. if that does not work try testing your O2 sensor or idle sensor.

Would a bad ignition coil cause the vehicle to buck or engine to knock?

As you did not say which vehicle this can only be a general answer Unlikely that a faulty coil would cause an engine to knock. Very possible it would cause bucking, if the coil is failing there would be a lack of spark. This would cause bucking/missfire, which may cause the engine to shake on it's mountings possibly causing a knock from contact with the vehicle frame.
