Wilder suffered a second successive defeat to Tyson Fury at the weekend, the WBC heavyweight champion eventually knocking the American out in the 11th round of an all-time classic in Las Vegas.
With a line finally being drawn under his rivalry with Fury after three absorbing bouts, Wilder's next move is already a hot topic for debate.
However, while the 35-year-old may have to bide his time for another high-profile outing, Scott has insisted that retirement is not in his fighter's thinking.
Speaking to iFL.TV, Scott said: "Deontay has set his family financially secure so he doesn't have to fight to make a living, but retiring is not in his plans at all and not something we've discussed."
Fury has claimed that he is the 'greatest heavyweight of his era', a statement that Scott agrees with after Saturday's clash. body check tags ::
