On Yesterday’s “This Week in Google” episode, host Leo Laporte talked to Matt Cutts about his current sabbatical from Google and his role as head of web spam.

After discussing what Cutts has been doing with his free time, including his recent Halloween costume efforts, Laporte asked if Cutts would go back to the same role at Google.

From Cutts roundabout response, it doesn’t sound like returning as Google’s head of web spam holds much interest for him:

Well, I really have been impressed with how well everyone else on the team is doing. It’s created a little bit of an opportunity for them to try new things, explore different stuff, you know, approach problems from a different way, and so, we’ll have to see how it goes.
