Where is the reproducible code that the posting guide asks you to send with your question?

It does, ask R to

str(object)

and you will see that it is an S4 object that contains a slot coefficients and you can get those by

object_at_coefficients

the package maintainer of the package may want to provide a coef() method or something similar.

You have not even sent the error message, nor the versions of Java, and the involved packages.
