We prove analogues of results of Glauberman and Thompson for fusion systems. Namely, given a (saturated) fusion system $\CF$ on a finite $p$-group $S$, and in the cases where $p$ is odd or $\CF$ is $S_4$-free, we show that $\Z(\N_\CF(\J(S)))=\Z(\CF)$ (Glauberman), and that if $\C_\CF(\Z(S))=\N_\CF(\J(S))=\CF_S(S)$, then $\CF=\CF_S(S)$ (Thompson). As a corollary, we obtain a stronger form of Frobenius' theorem for fusion systems, applicable under the above assumptions, and generalizing another result of Thompson.
