Jurić spent most of his playing career and his entire managing career in Italy.
A versatile and technically skilled midfielder or winger, Jurić started his career with Hajduk Split, where he played from 1993 to 1997. He then moved to Spain to join Sevilla FC, where he played from 1997 to 2001, except for a short loan to Albacete in 2000. After a short time back in Croatia with Šibenik, he moved in Italy in 2001 to join Serie B team Crotone, and then moved to Genoa in 2006, following his mentor Gian Piero Gasperini, his former head coach at Crotone. Since then, he established himself as a fan favourite, being protagonist of the rossoblu's return to Serie A, and then being appointed vice-captain for the team.
On 5 July 2011, new Inter manager Gian Piero Gasperini unveiled Jurić as one of his first team coaches in the new club, but was removed from his post the following September together with Gasperini and his entire staff. He re-united with Gasperini in September 2012, as new assistant coach of his at Palermo.
After achieving promotion with Crotone, he was offered to replace his mentor Gasperini at his former club Genoa in June 2016, which he accepted, thus becoming the new head coach of the Grifone.
He was sacked on 19 February 2017 after a 0–5 defeat against bottom-placed Pescara. He was reinstated as Genoa manager on 10 April 2017 after the sacking of Andrea Mandorlini. On 9 October 2018, he was appointed manager of Genoa for a third time. On 6 December 2018, he was sacked again after losing to third tier Virtus Entella on penalties in the Coppa Italia.
On July 2019 he was appointed at the helm of newly-promoted Serie A club Hellas Verona. Under his tenure with the Gialloblu, he competed in two top flight seasons with impressive results despite having one of the smallest budgets of the league. On 28 May 2021, Hellas Verona announced to have released him from his contract; on the same day, he was unveiled as the new head coach of Torino, effective from 1 July 2021.
