Dreher originally retired in summer 2003, taking up the role of Bayern youth goalkeeping coach and lending a hand to senior counterpart Sepp Maier in his efforts to keep Oliver Kahn and Michael Rensing in peak form. "I'm actually training more now than when I was a full professional," commented Dreher after taking part in practically every pre-season workout and tending one goal for the first team in practice matches and friendlies. For the 2005–06 campaign, Dreher was summoned out of "semi-retirement" and handed a new, one-year pro contract. "We've officially reactivated him. He's in such good shape, I'd have no hesitation picking him in any situation," coach Felix Magath said in praise of his new number three keeper, who became the oldest active player in the Bundesliga. Dreher was in goal for Bayern for one game in 2005–06, keeping a clean sheet against VfL Wolfsburg.
