I can see two reasons why having him teach classes would be a good thing.

1) He is a biochemist. He appears to be in agreement with conventional positions on biochemical pathways and processes. (His gripe is about how they arose.) Why would his teaching in that sphere be problematic.

2) The students are not schoolchildren, but undergraduates who should be imbued with skepticism about what they are taught by all their instructors. If Behe chose to teach about irreducible complexity this is surely a useful challenge to the reasoning power of the students.
