The sad thing is that he will probably make less off his books going through a traditional publisher than selling independently. First time published authors have visions of becoming popular and getting enough money from their books to become full time writers. But as a first timer he will probably be getting about 10% of cover price. And from that the agent will get their cut and the publisher will subtract advertising and promotional costs. And I guarantee they will require first refusal rights to any other books in that universe so he won't be able to continue independently (at least not in that universe) if he does decide that traditional publishing isn't for him.

Publishers are great snake oil salesmen.
