Former Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy and John Deere launched a new campaign Tuesday that features the Arizona native behind the wheel of a tractor, headed on a road trip to find the brand’s new ‘Chief Tractor Officer.’

The position is a real job, and would entail someone becoming the face of the brand on social media – think something similar to what Gerald Downey has done with Anhueser-Busch as ‘the Busch Guy.’

Purdy appeared on Tuesday’s episode of The Pat McAfee Show to promote the new advertising deal and had previously signed a national deal with Toyota.

The full episode of the show can be seen below. Purdy is on from the 33:55 mark to the 59:45 mark and details his first two seasons in the league with McAfee.
