Replaced Radiator now the Transmission is leaking fluid

Yesterday my boyfriend changed our neighbors radiator on a 86 or 87 Dodge Ram 150 truck. The operation went smoothly everything came out and went in as it should. Today our neighbor went to drive his truck and it is POURING transmission fluid. The hoses going into the radiator are tight, that is not the problem. It looks like the fluid is actually leaking from the transmission itself. He said that the transmission wouldn't shift from him either. Could changing the radiator have affected this at all? Is the suddenly leaking transmission at all related to the radiator swap performed yesterday? If so what happened and how do you diagnose and fix it? PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks :)
