Colchester have made no approach for Andy Scott, Brentford have confirmed.
Reports in the national press have linked the Bees' manager with the vacant hotseat at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
But chief executive David Heath said: "There has been no approach, but it's a tribute to how well Andy is doing that he's being linked with jobs elsewhere."
Scott's men crashed out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last night 4-3 on penalties at Luton, after Josh Wright and Craig Pead missed their spot-kicks.
The Bees had gone 2-0 up in normal time through Glenn Poole and Marvin Williams, but were pulled back to 2-2.
