Bilyk attended Clemson University, playing on the men's soccer team from 1995 to 1999. In February 1999, the Columbus Crew selected Bilyk in the second round (eighteenth overall) of the 1999 MLS College Draft. The Crew waived him on April 2, 1999.[1] He then signed with the Miami Fusion where he played from 1999 to 2001. In 1999, he played eleven games on loan to MLS Pro 40 and in 2000, he played three games on loan to Pro 40.[2] In 2002, he played for the Milwaukee Rampage as the Rampage won the USL A-League championship.[3] He played as a midfielder for USL First Division side Virginia Beach Mariners from 2003 to 2006.[4] On April 18, 2007, the Hampton Roads Piranhas signed Bilyk.[5] Injuries kept him from playing and the Piranhas released him on July 18, 2007. On March 24, 2008, he joined the Charlotte Eagles of the USL Second Division.[6]


From 2007 to 2009, Bilyk served as an assistant coach with Davidson College.[7] Entering the 2011 collegiate season, Bilyk was hired by Appalachian State. He is on staff for the 2012 season as well.
