I'd go more with Jen on this one but I'd probably run the reps a little higher than a strict 5x5, I think if he's just starting out he needs to be doing the lifts more than once a week to learn them. My suggestion:

Workout A -

Squat - 3x10
Bench - 3x10
Deadlift - 1x10
Press - 3x10
Row (Chin if strong enough) - 3x10

Workout B -

Squat - 3x10
Bench - 3x10
Deadlift - 1x10
Press - 3x10
Row (Chin if strong enough) - 3x10

Perfect form first, add weight later. A few months of this getting to the point where he has learned decent form and has added at least some weight to the bar would prime him for a reduced frequency routine like the Christy one.
