Why do we villainize the previous coaches?

We all no know that Hawkins was not a good coach. I will even agree that he was too high on himself and maybe a bit of an ass in person as some have acknowledged. Still, I think this lasting hatred goes a little too far. People can and do change and Hawkins was never all bad as a person. He has a good family and he's obviously a good father. His son, Cody, was a good Buff and still is a Buff. He gave it his all and did it on a team that wasn't very good despite his dad's coaching, which I think only added to the pressure he had on him.

I see the same disdain for MacIntyre here. I root for both of our former coaches. I do not take any joy in watching them fail. Why do so many here? The sentiments will be no different for MT if he his out in the next 3-5 years.
