light fixture wiring

last month

We thought we had a simple light fixture change out, but of course not. Bought a house, trying to change the bedroom ceiling fan to a single light. My husband said the fan was on a 3 way switch, but the switches only controlled the light, not the fan motor. There’s only 1 red wire, so he thought he’d just cap it and connect the rest and be good to go. Nope. He’s tried different configurations, including a pigtail, and nothing works.

I’m attaching a photo of the wires, and I’m hoping someone can help us figure this out. We’ve done electrical before, but this is stumping us and majorly frustrating him. TIA for any help!
