No true. She was on an assignment from Nick Fury.
However I believe it was not just an assignment for her since Agent May was in a retired on active duty status after serving as Coulson's bodyguard and the Bahrain incident. That her husband won over Phil in the end, perhaps partially because of not mixing work and play, which bit her later with Ward, we are left with the personal connection of luring May back to the field.
Yeah, but she did only take that assignment because she did cared about Coulson more than staying off active duty.
I have a feeling she may be back at some point, not right away.
It'll certainly be a gamble if they go ahead with no Coulson. If successful the show could potentially go on for years as the official spin-off to the MCU, and we could see a wide range of characters take on the SHIELD director mantle. If not Season 6 could very well be the last (although six seasons is good going if you ask me - I know you Americans are very strict with your TV Series' renewals).
Maybe they'll bring him back as part of Fitz's brain damage, like when he saw Simmons when she wasn't there, or Framework Fitz?
