While it does not happen very often, it has happened before, the most recent coach is Dick Jauron who was fired after starting 3-9 this season.

Mike Nolan was fired when he was half way through the season at 2-5

actually the most recent is Brad Childress the Vikings head coach

Mike Singletary of the 49ers was the most recent, and it kind of does happen regularly.

Coaches with winning records have been fired. One example would be in 2006 head Coach Marty Schottenheimer lead the Chargers to a 14-2 record, before losing in the playoffs to the Patriots. With ownership questioning his ability to win in the playoffs, he was let go after the 2006 Super Bowl.
