“His assistant, Kenny Miller, has also left the Club.
“Narcís Pèlach will take control of the team for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game at Wigan Athletic as Interim Head Coach.”
The Terriers currently sit in 22nd in the Championship having won just two league games since November.
It is a far cry from where they were situated in 2018/19, when they were relegated from the Premier League.
Fotheringham’s sacking comes after he launched an astonishing rant against his players after a late collapse against Blackpool.
He blasted his players showing as “unacceptable” against a fellow relegation contender.
He said: “We are absolutely gutted and devastated in there. There has been a lot of angry, harsh words that have been said and rightly so.

“Because we got ourselves in a situation where we in pole position and surrendered three points was unacceptable. I am lost for words.
“There is a real collective anger in there and a lot of harsh words said collectively as a group and we have let the club down there.
“We started really well and there was real character there and we faced the challenge head on.
“We knew Blackpool were very direct and we played on the front foot and caused them problems, especially in the first half-hour and we were in a comfortable position and then the red card came.
“But with the second half, we made clear that Blackpool would throw everything at it.
“They are a very determined side under Mick [McCarthy]. But it was an unacceptable performance.
“We should not have come away with anything other than three points.”
Fotheringham was only appointed into the role of head coach in late September.
But with a record boasting just five wins in 21 matches, Huddersfield felt compelled to oust him before the club’s season became unsalvageable.
