He earned it and is probably been sought after by several programs.

Star Wars Confirms There Are Sith Lords Lurking In The High Republic
Star Wars: The High Republic's biggest selling point has been its place in the Star Wars timeline: The High Republic era exists 200 years before The Skywalker Saga begins in The Phantom Menace; a time where the Jedi Order and Republic were thriving in a time of light, and the threat of the Sith Empire had been (seemingly) destroyed.
