As well as applying the great advice already given, if he doesn't toilet in his crate you could try putting him back in his crate with something nice to chew on or occupy him for two hours after he does his business, then let him back out to toilet again. The only thing is you would have to turn the toilet session into some form of stimulating exercise afterwards, like a game with a toy or even maybe just 15 minutes of smooches before you rinse and repeat.

This approach could help in teaching his muscles to hold it but won't work without implementing some of the other strategies mentioned as he may just start toileting in his crate, which will form another undesired habit. I'd also only do this for max 4 days to prevent him from starting to resent the crate.
