According to the article I read, Felt declined to continue when they spoke with Vaughters. Now, this is from Vaughters himself, so who knows all of the facts. It sounds to me that Cervelo likely was not willing to continue with the costs of supporting a Pro Continental team as a main sponsor, but wanted to do more than Felt was willing. It all came down to money.
I would not be shocked if Felt finds another team, but it would just be speculation. I have always liked Felt, and considered them to be Specialized lesser known cousin, and their sponsorship with Garmin always seemed like a perfect match, as both Garmin and Felt were kind of the outsiders to their clubs.
I am kind of sick of Cervelo in general as a Company (akin to the saying about Christianity - I like their bikes, but I hate the people who ride their bikes).
