Vermezović (known locally as Vermez or Čika Crni) began playing football for FK Partizan in the Yugoslav First League, before moving abroad to play in Spain for Sporting de Gijón and UD Salamanca. He also played in Greece for Panionios F.C. and finished his playing career with German side Hannover 96.
Following his retirement, Vermezović began coaching with Partizan. He achieved success in reaching the UEFA Cup Round of 16 in the 2004–05 season by coaching sixteen straight matches with Partizan in European competition. This was Partizan's biggest success in the UEFA Cup since the 1988–89 season.
In May 2012, he returned to Partizan and once again became head coach. He ended his second spell in charge of Partizan in April 2013.
On 14 February 2014, he was appointed head coach of South African outfit Orlando Pirates. Although he led the team to Nedbank Cup success in May, he left the club later that year, resigning from his position due to a string of poor results in the 2014/2015 season.
