Rencher joins Oklahoma St. MBB Staff

The all-time leading scorer in Texas basketball history and a veteran of over 13 years of collegiate coaching, Terrence Rencher has joined Mike Boynton’s staff as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State.

The former NBA guard was most recently on staff at Creighton where he helped the Bluejays win the Big East regular season title in 2020 and advance to the Sweet 16 in 2021. Creighton was 46-16 in Rencher’s two seasons in Omaha, and he helped groom All-Big East selections Ty-Shon Alexander, Marcus Zegarowski, Damien Jefferson and Denzel Mahoney.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Rencher was the 1991 Mr. Basketball in the state of New York, and went on to become the all-time leading scorer and steals leader for Texas with 2,306 points and 255 steals. Rencher also ranks sixth in assists in Longhorn history. He was named the 1992 Dick Vitale National Freshman of the Year and helped guide the Longhorns to a trio of NCAA Tournament appearances and conference championships.

“Coach Rencher has proven himself as an excellent teacher and developer, as well as a strong evaluator and recruiter,” Boynton said. “His experience as a player will serve as a great benefit to our program. Terrence has worked at all levels of college basketball and has found success in many different roles. His ability to connect with our players will be invaluable. I’m thankful to have him and his wife Faye, as well as their children joining our team.”

Prior to Creighton, Rencher spent two seasons as an assistant coach at the University of San Diego, and he also gained experience an assistant coach at New Mexico, Texas State, Tulsa and Sam Houston State.

“I’m extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity to join coach Boynton’s staff here at Oklahoma State,” Rencher said. “The way coach Boynton is moving the program forward, as well as his core values, align perfectly with my perspective. OSU has a rich history of success on the basketball court and the possibilities are limitless. My family and I are looking forward to getting connected to the Stillwater community. Go Pokes!”

Before his work at USD, he was on the staff at the University of New Mexico where he was an assistant coach for two seasons under Craig Neal. In each of those two seasons the Lobos won 17 overall games and 10 conference contests.

No stranger to Oklahoma, Rencher spent one season as an assistant at Tulsa as a member of Doug Wojcik’s staff in 2011-12. While at Tulsa, Rencher coached Jordan Clarkson who has averaged 14.7 points per game during his six-year NBA career.

Rencher got his first full-time coaching position at Texas State, where he had a pair of stings with the Bobcats. He first coached at Texas State from 2009-11 before rejoining as a member of Danny Kaspar’s staff in 2013. The Bobcats were one of the Sun Belt’s best defensive teams with Rencher on staff during the 2013-14 season.

Rencher spent the 2012-13 season as an assistant coach at Sam Houston State. His college coaching career began as a graduate assistant at Saint Louis under the late Rick Majerus during the 2008-09 season.

Rencher spent a decade playing basketball professionally from 1995 to 2006 in the NBA, CBA and in Europe. He spent the 1995-96 season with the Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns after being the 32nd overall selection of the 1995 NBA Draft.

He spent nine years playing in Europe following his 1996-97 season in the CBA. His professional career in Europe took him to Italy, Germany, Greece, Croatia and Israel. He garnered MVP awards in Italy and Germany while earning All-Star recognition in Germany, Italy, Israel and Croatia.

Rencher is a 2007 graduate of the University of Texas with a bachelor’s degree in Education with a focus on youth and community studies. He and his wife, Faye, have two daughters Siena and Savannah.
