He played his final FIFA international in 2000 against Honduras in the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup; he came on as a substitute for midfielder Winston Griffiths as Aaron Lawrence was sent off. He is married with three children, Ashley, Warren Jr. and Moya. Warren Barrett played a big role in 1998 Qualification,'Road To France' without conceding a goal on home soil.


Barrett was selected as a national goalkeeping coach for Jamaica in 2008. On 26 July 2010, Barrett was suspended from all coaching duties by the JFF for an altercation with a match official at Jarrett Park. He was the goalkeeping coach of the Jamaican squad that finished as runners-up in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[6]
