The talented but inconsistent Grgic suffered from comparisons to Garry Lyon early in his career, but after playing the last nine games of 1997, he won the Most Improved Player award the next year and played 19 of 25 matches. His 1999 was a disappointment, groin injuries Grgic had battled since he was 15 flared, and after barely making Round 1, Grgic injured a hamstring and missed several weeks.

Grgic bounced back to become a regular in 2000 after being moved into defence. Despite a drop in form towards the end of the year that briefly saw him dropped to the Reserves he fought his way back into the side and retained his place through the Grand Final. After 14 games in 2001 he was traded to Geelong for National Draft selection #55. He played 13 games for the Cats over two seasons and and appeared in a VFL premiership side.

Delisted at the end of 2003 he joined Bell Park, playing there through 2007, before returning to original club Bell Post Hill as an assistant coach in 2008. They were runners-up in his first two seasons, but after Grgic took over as senior coach in 2010 they won the premiership at the first opportunity. He coached them to further premierships in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015, as well as finishing runner-up in 2013.
