I think it depends on the era, you have to remember that goaltending coaches are a relatively new position in hockey, so back when Hartley (also a former goaltender, but not a good one
) and Cloutier began coaching it made sense to have a goaltender coaching the defense because a defenseman's #1 job should be making the goaltenders job as easy as possible and who knows how to help a goaltender more than a goaltender.
