Chiefs rookie star Tyreek Hill is getting a bum rap for past mistakes ... so says Hill's college coach, who tells TMZ Sports it's time for the world to give the kid a clean slate.

Hill pled guilty to punching and choking his pregnant girlfriend in December 2014 ... resulting in 3 years of probation and enrollment in a batterer intervention course.
"He's owned that. He's moved on from that, and he's trying to put forward who he really is and show everybody that."
