Upon retiring from playing Hislop moved to the United States and started a new career as a pundit and co-commentator for ESPN.

He was also briefly a goalkeeping coach for the football team at Quinnipiac University but had to quit because of his media commitments.

Hislop is also the honorary president of anti-racism charity ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ which came about when he donated £50 to a local anti-racism campaign during his time playing for Newcastle United.

After urging more people to donate and getting more actively involved with the campaign, Show Racism the Red Card was created.

Since 2009, he has been working for ESPN Carribean as a business development representative.

Having already graduated from Howard University in Washington with a degree in mechanical engineering in 1992, Hislop returned in 2013 and graduated with a masters degree in business administration.
