He's an "advisor". He has neither moved on to a more prestigious role in Google/Alphabet, nor has he started a new company (that he's announcing publicly), nor has he moved to a prestigious position elsewhere.

It's clear that he's been pushed out.

Curious why he would need to move to a more prestigious position?

Lots of people quit jobs and take some time before doing their next thing.
