Terrence Rencher is leaving his assistant's job at San Diego to replace Preston Murphy on the Creighton staff.
Bluejays coach Greg McDermott announced Rencher's hiring yesterday. Murphy, who was named last year in an FBI investigation into college basketball, resigned last week after being on paid administrative leave since March. Rencher will start his new job Thursday when the Bluejays play San Diego State in a tournament in Las Vegas. Murphy allegedly was paid a $6,000 bribe in 2017 to steer prospective pros to aspiring sports agent Christian Dawkins.
