He graduated from the Institute of Physical Education (Lviv) and the Supreme school of coaches in Moscow in 1983. He has managed a number of teams, devoting most of his career to Karpaty Lviv and Metalist Kharkiv. He last served as manager of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Markevych was appointed head coach of Ukraine's national football team in early February 2010,[5] but left six months later,[3] submitting his resignation to the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) by fax on 21 August 2010. Initially, the legal department of FFU stated that such a document could only be submitted in its original form and the fax copy could not be accepted.[6][7] Ultimately, the FFU accepted his resignation and appointed Yuriy Kalitvintsev as caretaker manager.[8][9]
