I would try to get his hips lower also. Wider stance, push the knees all the way out inside the arms and arch the back as much as possible. If he's really really tall and long legged, he's pretty much screwed for life in weightlifting, but he shouldn't have to go too extreme with modifications to a "good" position. I have a guy who's I believe 6'4" and mostly legs who can still start fairly upright.
