Tilley was drafted by the Blues in the 10th round, 196th overall in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted he played for Michigan State for 4 years where he developed a strong defensive presence. Immediately after college, Tilley joined the Blues and played his only full season in the NHL during the 1988–1989 season, scoring 23 points. Tilley then bounced between the Blues and their IHL affiliate Peoria Rivermen for the next two years before playing in Italy for another two years. The 1993–1994 season saw a return for Tilley with the Blues, as he skated in 48 contests. This would prove to be the last time Tilley would play in the NHL. Tilley then played out the rest of his career in the IHL, retiring after the 2000–2001 season with the Chicago Wolves.[1]

Tilley currently lives in the Kansas City area and helps coach youth hockey. He also won the Missouri 4th of July Washers tournament 2 times in a row[2][citation needed]
