He also played for Konyaspor in the Turkish Super Lig[2] before he returned to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In 2001, he moved to the Austrian Bundesliga by signing with LASK Linz.[3] After 3 years in Austria, Memić came back to Bosnia and once again signed for FK Željezničar. After only half a season at Željezničar, Memić left the club and went back to Austria and signed for SV Gmunden. He was at the club until he finished his playing career in 2006.

Coaching careerEdit

After finishing his playing career, Memić came back to Sarajevo and started working there as a coach. He was a youth team coach, then an assistant coach and in March 2006 he was promoted to the position of a head coach in FK Željezničar, after Ratko Ninković had resigned. As he was just a replacement, he led the team only until the end of the season.

While at Željezničar, from 2009 to 2014 he was the assistant coach of Amar Osim (2009–2013), Hajrudin Đurbuzović (2013–2014) and Admir Adžem (2014) before once again becoming the head coach of Željezničar in December 2014 replacing Admir Adžem.[4] Less than a month later, in January 2015 Memić was contoroversaly sacked and Milomir Odović was named the new manager of Željezničar.[5]

After Željezničar, Memić managed NK Travnik from 2015 to 2016.
