Hull and former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has said it is 'disrespectful' to link him to Alan Pardew's job as Newcastle manager.
Pardew faces increasing pressure after another 4-0 defeat left Newcastle United at the very bottom of the Premier League table without a win this season.
Bruce is one of several people rumoured to be possible candidates for the job, but he told a BBC radio station he did not think the speculation was fair on Pardew.
"It isn't nice - it's a horrible Sunday morning for him and I find it very, very disrespectful that I'm linked with somebody else's job when he's still in a job.
"It's a hard enough job we've all got. We all know what it's like now in football management.
"That part of the game will never change, but for me at the moment I'm just concentrating on the game against West Ham (on Monday night) and leaving all that aside."
"After what happened to me at Sunderland, it's similar to what Alan Pardew is going through now. I know how difficult the north-east is. I've been here for a couple of years. Hull gave me that chance to get back up and running again and for that I'll always be grateful.
"I've only been here a couple of years, and we've had a really good couple of years."
Newcastle United have sunk to the very bottom of the Premier League table after suffering a 4-0 defeat at Southampton.
The result piled even more pressure onto the manager, Alan Pardew, who signed an eight-year contract just under two years ago. He skipped the post-match press conference after the game at St Mary's.
Fans held up a banner reading 'Pardew Out' in the away section of the ground.
