The hire is official. 

On Thursday, Oklahoma State hired Terrence Rencher as an assistant coach, replacing Cannen Cunningham. Rencher spent the past two seasons at Creighton in the same role. 

He helped guide the Blue Jays to a 46-16 season. Coach Mike Boynton said Rencher is an excellent teacher, developer, evaluator and recruiter. 

"Terrence has worked at all levels of college basketball and has found success in many different roles, Boynton said. "His ability to connect with our players will be invaluable."

Rencher said he is grateful and excited to join the OSU staff. 

“The way coach Boynton is moving the program forward, as well as his core values, align perfectly with my perspective," Rencher said. "OSU has a rich history of success on the basketball court and the possibilities are limitless."

Rencher said he is looking forward to connecting with the Stillwater community. 

Rencher played basketball at Texas from 1992-95. He is the all-time leader in points (2,306) and steals (255). He played in the NBA during the 1995-96 season, and nine seasons in Europe. 

Before Creighton, he coached San Diego, New Mexico, Texas State, Sam Houston State, Tulsa and Saint Louis. 

“His experience as a player will serve as a great benefit to our program," Boynton said.
