Our expert says:
There are sleeping disorders causing excessive sleeping. See http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/narcolepsy/narcolepsy.htm
But he may also not be getting enough or even deep enough sleep at night, causing the tiredness. I suggest that he goes for a good medical checkup to exclude anemia or thyroid problems and to see whether he needs a referral to a specialist (neurologist)
