But what you also have to take into account is
Kirk's age. He will be about 26 years old at the time this movie takes place, as opposed to the 34 year old Kirk we knew at the start of TOS. He didn't get to have his rise through the ranks like was described here and there in the series. That experience wasn't had in this universe, so he's going to make mistakes as Captain and will have to be knocked down a peg or two.
Pike could be doing this as he feels responsibility for Kirk becoming Captain so quickly, and assumes command of Enterprise with Kirk as First Officer to get him back on track.
Still seems a bit contrived. Spock gets removed from the position as his punishment, so when Pike gets the capataincy, the spot is conveniently open for Kirk. Also seems to be something of a rebuff for Spock. Of course, maybe Pike wants to take him back aboard as science officer. Who knows?
Let's just say Spock Prime can't be too pleased with the turn of events. "Thrusters on full." Don't think so.
