Help with balky riding lawn mower

I have a Craftsman riding lawn mower with a Briggs and Stratton 10 HP Model # 214907 engine. I just had it serviced this spring, cleaned the carburetor, new air filter and spark plug, etc. It runs like new when I start mowing, but it dies anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes later, and won't start again until it cools down. Google research is pointing to a bad ignition coil. Is there anything else I should check given those symptoms, before ordering a new coil?
