Happens frequently with my Maddie and her long butt fur. The problem is the loose poo. You need to find the reason. Food allergy perhaps. May need a vet check for the root cause. You might try getting him a sani-trim there to remove the fur. A groomer here does it for $5 on a walk in basis.
It also may happen because they poop then end up stepping in it as they turn around in the litter box. It it is not firm then it's a real mess. I feel your pain. Try switching to a larger box with more room to step out of the way. They don't clean it because it tastes awful to them, too. Normally they lick their (relatively) clean hiney, not poo-laden legs and feet. In a nutshell, find out why the poop is loose then proceed from there.
