He has coached on both sides of the ball and served as equipment manager over the course of his time at the Berg. In 2010, Fillipovich was named recruiting coordinator and outside linebackers coach.
During his time at the Berg, Fillipovich has coached five All-Ohio Athletic Conference honorees, led by three-time recipient (2007, 2008, 2009) defensive tackle Matt Grieves. Grieves has also earned a spot on ESPN The Magazine District 4 Academic Second Team. In 2009 Grieves was named the 39th All-American in the history of the program.
