I'd come up with specific examples before gkicking the guy. See if he can act on those, if he can then he might work out all right. If this dude is good in 5 mans, then it might be a case of burnout. I'll describe my mild case below. I'm getting so sick of specs that can't CC worth a damn. Watching my DPS friends outgear me through arenas and battlegrounds makes me want to tear my hair out. Finally, getting the blame for every wipe is no fun either. The other day I got to the point where on a Steamvaults badge run I instituded a "you draw aggro, you die" policy. I've avoided serious tanking since then. Hopefully a week off from WoW and a new guild will fix it. Maybe have the guy re-spec fury/ret/balance for a week or two?

If the DPS is too busy topping the DPS meter chart instead of watching Omen they're not in it to work as a group anyway. After a warning or two I state just the same: You aggro it, you tank it. To reply to the topic, if a tank doesn't get the fights and he's serious about his role in the raid, have him watch some youtube video's (those that come with instructions) about that specific boss. That's how I learned all my Kara fights before I set foot in Kara. Your guild might do the fight different, and you won't be a better tank because of it per definition, but at least you understand the fight better.
