The spark plug fouls? If so you probably have bad oil rings or valve guide seals in that cylinder. Try installing a hotter plug to help burn off the fouling.

No just the coil pack...will no longer fire

Is the coil pack receiving excess heat from the engine? Have you installed new plugs and wires? Wires with too much resistance might make a coil go bad.
