Best Answer

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.
