My personal thinking would be he was needed more as Commander of Deep Space Nine and that with the Dominion threat building up, there was no need for him to leave the station for several days to captain the ship when Worf has ample tactical experience and training.
Of course, if he had captained the ship, he's another character that would have had to have been fitted into FC, where he didn't really belong. So, had to be Worf.
