go over your wiring make sure nothing got pinched. recheck the plugs they might have gotten some residual coolant or oil on them

Remove ALL of the spark plugs and attempt to start the engine for about 10 seconds. Reinstall plugs and retry.

I don't see how the coolant temp sensor would prevent it from starting.
