Yes. Use NBTedit:

Editor by copyboy from

Download it, and run, click File -> Open then go to your Minecraft server directory and find players directory and select the name of player you want, for example Player.dat

You should see something like this: enter image description here

You need to go to "Pos", and there you have it, coords of player you wanted.

Just double click any to edit it :D
