You can try some warm water with honey and lemon.  

He can probably take the children's Robitussin in a pinch.

Okay, get him into a nice hot shower and leave him in there for a while, let the steam loosen all the crap up.  Once he gets out, hot tea with lemon and honey, and deep breathing and productive coughing to get the crap OUT.

Do a Google search for home remedies.

Vicks vapor rub on his chest will help. 

Or a hot toddy. =)

My mother used to make cough syrup by boiling onions and honey?  Codine cough syrup is my personal favorite.
