terminiation of employee

Can an employee who was fired from their post which was not a board position but had to report to the board, can they run for the board of directors if they were terminated from their post?

No rule in RONR prohibits it. As far as RONR is concerned, anyone can serve on a board. But you might want to check your bylaws for eligibility requirements.

Unless the By-laws specifically restrict who can run (and/or be elected to office) then the ex-employee can run for the Board. The By-laws would have to state that employees or former employees are not eligible to serve on the Board - or if that you have to be a member of the organization to serve on the Board (assuming the ex-employee is not also a member.)

However, being eligible to serve on the Board, and being elected to the Board are two separate things.

No issues with RONR.

It does lead to fun meetings.

We had a school employee get fired by the Principal and had his firing appealed and backed by Superintendent (Non criminal activity and somewhat controversial firing)

He ran for School Board and was elected. So he became the Superintendent's boss.

School Board meetings had huge ratings on cable. Everyone looked forward to the Superintendent's report.

I can believe it - the Superintendent probably wished this guy hadn't been elected. Mine you, that also brings up the issue of that should this ex-employee be elected, this does not mean that the Board as a whole has to accept the member making dilatory statements, motions, etc. and can back up the Chairman's decisions to rule the member out of order.
