If your clutch was malfunctioning enough to cause damage as you described you would have noticed it partially slipping for a long time before total failure.
The hot spot on the flywheel is symptomatic of a clutch that has been systematically abused.
Everyday now one can observe drivers holding their vehicle at a junction or traffic lights on an incline on the clutch!
No use of the handbrake what so ever.
I assure you, under some circumstances those clutches will be glowing and years taken off their service life!
