Is any amount too much for Maddux?

Here's the report from the Padre's website for yesterday's game against the Angels:

Greg Maddux certainly looked in midseason form Friday, as he needed just 24 pitches -- including 19 strikes -- over three scoreless innings. He did not allow a hit or a walk.

It reminded me of his 68-pitch, 8 inning performance against the Giants on Aug 13, 2006.  About a month later he threw 68 in 7 innings against the Padres.  And a quick glance at his '07 numbers and he never threw over 100 pitches all last year and finished 14-10 with 4.14 ERA.

Now, I know he's clearly one of the best pitchers of this generation, let alone history.  My question is this: is it too early to start talking to him about becoming the pitching coach of the Reds once he retires?  And could you just promise him, like, $7m/yr?  Whatever he knows about pitching, it's worth a lot of money.
