Fury Sr. is still around but supposedly the Infinity Formula that slowed his aging has worn off and he can't get more. That's an excuse to retire him in favor of Fury Jr. But if you think about how old Fury would really be, it does make sense. Steve will be 100 in five years and Fury is at least a decade older than him.

Fury Jr. is a SHIELD agent working with Phil Coulson and the Secret Avengers.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
