Yes, you can cope.

First, the AF in these modern cameras is fantastic. Your shots won't be out of focus.

That isn't going to be the problem. The problem will be that everything he wants to be in focus, e.g. the tip of the nose , the near eye, the far eye and the far ear won't be. The DOF profile is about one F stop, maybe a bit more less forgiving. With a crop sensor camera at f/2.8 it was something he didn't have to consider at all. With a full frame at f/1.8 he will have to think about it constantly.

Go over to the Portraits and People forum where you see it all the time with people who have just moved to full frame.

But if he want the equivalent depth of field he merely needs to stop down about one stop, and adjust the shutter speed (if movement is not an issue) or ISO to compensate. He has the the freedom to do that, or not, and still gain the benefits of higher resolution.
