Rencher was a prep star at St. Raymond High School for Boys in the Bronx, New York, earning New York City MVP honors in his senior year. Rencher attended the University of Texas at Austin, being drawn to the high-paced tempo of play that coach Tom Penders employed. There he finished his career with 2,306 points (making him both the school's and Southwest Conference's all-time career scorer in men's basketball) and 440 assists. He was selected by the Washington Bullets in the 1995 NBA draft, but his draft rights were traded along with Rex Chapman to the Miami Heat, for the draft rights to Jeff Webster and Ed Stokes. He was traded midway through his rookie season (1995–96) with the Heat to the Phoenix Suns, in exchange for Tony Smith. Internationally, he played for Bnei Herzliya in Israel, Pallacanestro Cantù, Basket Rimini and Viola Reggio Calabria in Italy, KK Split in Croatia and Telekom Baskets Bonn and RheinEnergie Köln in Germany, amongst others.
He moved back to the United States in 2006 and enrolled at UT for the 2007 spring semester. In addition to taking three semesters of classes and serving as a student mentor, Rencher also served as the basketball program director at the Regents School of Austin and coach of the boys' varsity team.
His college coaching career began as a graduate assistant at Saint Louis University under the late Rick Majerus during the 2008–09 season. In 2009–11 he worked as an assistant coach at Texas State University under Doug Davalos. In 2011–12 he worked as an assistant coach at the University of Tulsa under Doug Wojcik. In 2012–13 he worked as an assistant coach at Sam Houston State University under Jason Hooten. In 2013–15 he worked as an assistant coach at Texas State University under Danny Kaspar.
He was hired as an assistant coach at University of New Mexico in July 2015 to work under head coach Craig Neal. During his time at New Mexico, Rencher picked a fight with a Colorado State player following a game. He waited with two other NM assistants outside the arena, taunting the player. He was reported to have laughed about the fact that the CSU player’s parents were dead. After two winning seasons, he accepted a new position as an assistant coach at University of San Diego in June 2017, where he assisted the team in earning a 20-win 2017-2018 season and a quarterfinals appearance in the CIT post season play.
