Vulić was born in Split, Croatia, Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. For hometown HNK Hajduk Split, the stopper with a powerful shot played nine seasons in his first spell, amassing 167 league games with 25 goals. He then had successful abroad stints with RCD Mallorca (Spain) and FC Nantes (France) in the following five years, being instrumental for the former in a La Liga return in his debut season – 35 matches, five goals – and scoring more than ten times overall with both clubs.
Vulić won 25 caps for Yugoslavia netting once, and participated at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, appearing in four out of five matches (two starts) for the eventual quarterfinalists. His debut was on 30 April 1986 in a 2–4 friendly loss in Brazil.
During three years, starting in 1990, Vulić played as many times for the newly established Croatian national team.
Vulić became a manager in 1998, and his first spells were spent at his main club Hajduk, only being fired near the end of his fourth.
Additionally, Vulić also served as assistant in the Croatian national team.
