In 2011 Telfer was appointed player/coach at conference side Sutton United and officially retired from playing completely in 2014.

In May 2014 he joined former Luton Town team-mate Juergen Sommer at North American Soccer League side Indy Eleven as assistant coach.

He left the club in June 2015 after the club’s owner felt that immediate changes were needed to impact the direction of the team on the field.

Telfer was working as director of coaching at his local youth club Carmel FC in Indiana in the United States but is now back in the UK.

In 2015 he narrowly missed out on the Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager’s job after reaching the final round of interviews.
