Tasmania's opposition looks to be heading for new leadership.

Bryan Green is understood to have resigned, following parliament rising in the early hours of this morning, after three years of leading the party.

Mr Green's leadership has been under pressure over poor polling and a push from outside the party to have former MP David O'Byrne return to lead it.

The Braddon MP has served two terms as Deputy Premier, first under Paul Lennon and also Lara Giddings.

Rebecca White is being mooted to replace Mr Green, with Scott Bacon as deputy.
