Ex-Leeds United and Millwall forward made joint favourite for EFL job with former Huddersfield Town boss
The Mariners are one of the many EFL outfits to have made a change in the dugout relatively early on in the season.
Morison, a well-travelled forward in his playing days, has been installed as one of the BetVictor favourites to replace Hurst at 2/1.
Morison began his senior managerial career with Cardiff City, although made a shock move into the non-league pyramid with Hornchurch earlier this year.
He joined Leeds as a player in January 2013 before going on to make 42 appearances for the Whites.
Although hailed for his work ethic at Elland Road, he struggled in front of goal and notched on just five occasions.
The 40-year-old is remembered more fondly by fans of Millwall, who he enjoyed three spells with across the course of his playing career.
